What are you most likely doing on the weekend?
Working, coaching baseball and playing golf with my kids.
What is a fun fact few people know about you?
I taught myself more than I ever wanted to know about computer programming and video game development, so I could recreate local golf courses to play on a golf simulator.
What are you curious about?
How the world works.
When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I don't remember. I think I wanted to be an astronaut, but then I watched the Space Shuttle Challenger launch live. I learned a different lesson about dreams then.
What is one skill you are currently working on?
I try to get better at golf, but I may have peaked.
